Manny Pacquiao's defence of his WBA world welterweight title against Adrien Broner will take place on Saturday, 19 January 2019, it has been confirmed.
The contest against the American four-weight world champion will be held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The Filipino, 39, has also reiterated his desire for a rematch against Floyd Mayweather, who beat him in 2015.
Mayweather, 41, has not fought since he beat Irish mixed martial artist Conor McGregor in 2017.
Pacquaio's belt is a secondary title, as the holder of the 'super' title, Keith Thurman, is recognised as the champion of the division by the WBA.
Pacquiao said at Monday's announcement: "When Floyd and I met in Japan [in September] we talked and he said he wants to come out of retirement to fight me."
The American will fight Japanese kick boxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a three-round exhibition contest on New Year's Eve in Tokyo.
On his contest against Broner, Pacquiao said: "I chose Broner, because I believe we can have a good fight and entertain the fans - we cannot underestimate him.
"I want to prove I'm still in boxing. I want to entertain people.
"My opponent is fast and a [high] calibre fighter. We have to work hard and train hard for this fight."
